Great for a short hike near Denver. Nice shady stretches made it okay for our mid-morning hike. Lots of wildflowers and lovely views. We only passed one other person on the trail.

Great trail for trail running with the pup although it narrows about 60-70% of the way in. Regardless, the views are beautiful for such a short hike. Worth checking out...

Looks like it would have been a great trail, but it's currently CLOSED for repair until fall! We took the trails across the street on Green Mountain and they were enjoyable!

A decent trail. The views are great from what you see though the trees and a good view of Boulder. Starting from the east side of the trail is much better as the west side is very steep for almost a quarter of the way. good for bike riders
